Welcome to Monday Mail!

Welcome to Monday Mail, your source for all the great happenings at Trickum Middle School and our community! We encourage you to take a few minutes weekly to check out our upcoming events, find links to important news and information, and read about opportunities to be involved at the Greatest Middle School in the Nation! This is the 2022-2023 School Year, and our future is BRIGHT!

The Trickum Social Studies department would like to honor Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs from September 15th-October 15th. Today we will introduce some basic Spanish phrases that you can use for casual conversation. 


“Good Morning” in Spanish is “Buenos Dias”. 

“How are you?” in Spanish is “Como estás?”

“How old are you?” in Spanish is “Cuántos años tienes?”

“Nice to meet you” in Spanish is “Mucho gusto”. 


We hope you will use some of these throughout the week! Follow @Trickum_BlackHistory on Instagram to engage with daily posts, and email Mrs. Woods to share your own Hispanic traditions.

The Trickum 6th grade Tiger Luau is happening on September 22, 2022

from 4:30-6:30 pm.

We need your help leading up to the day of the event as well as the day of the event!

Please review the available slots and sign up where you can help. Thank you!
